    Childhood aggressive behavior (AGG) has a substantial heritability of around 50%. Here we present a genome-wide association meta-analysis (GWAMA) of childhood AGG, in which all phenotype measures across childhood ages from ...
  • Pearman, Peter B.; Alioto, Tyler; Trotta, Jean-Remi; Columbus, J. Travis (Wiley, 2021)
    The resolution of cryptic diversity is essential for understanding the evolutionary diversification of lineages and establishing conservation priorities. We examine relationships in Eriogoneae (Polygonaceae), a diverse ...
  • Blanco, Enrique; Di Croce, Luciano; Aranda Aragón, Sergio (Oxford University Press, 2021)
    In order to evaluate cell- and disease-specific changes in the interacting strength of chromatin targets, ChIP-seq signal across multiple conditions must undergo robust normalization. However, this is not possible using ...

    Large vertebrates are extremely sensitive to anthropogenic pressure, and their populations are declining fast. The white rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) is a paradigmatic case: this African megaherbivore has suffered a ...
  • Farré, Xavier; Molina, Ruben; Barteri, Fabio; Timmers, Paul R.H.J.; Joshi, Peter K.; Oliva Miguel, Baldomero; Acosta, Sandra; Esteve Altava, Borja; Navarro i Cuartiellas, Arcadi, 1969-; Muntané, Gerard (Oxford University Press, 2021)
    The enormous mammal's lifespan variation is the result of each species' adaptations to their own biological trade-offs and ecological conditions. Comparative genomics have demonstrated that genomic factors underlying both, ...
  • Grau Bové, Xavier; Sebé-Pedrós, Arnau (Oxford University Press, 2021)
    Possvm (Phylogenetic Ortholog Sorting with Species oVerlap and MCL [Markov clustering algorithm]) is a tool that automates the process of identifying clusters of orthologous genes from precomputed phylogenetic trees and ...
  • Ramsheh, Mohammadali Yavari; Esteve-Codina, Anna; Heath, Simon; Gut, Ivo Glynne; Brightling, Christopher E. (Elsevier, 2021)
    Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with airway inflammation and bacterial dysbiosis. The relationship between the airway microbiome and bronchial gene expression in COPD is poorly ...
  • Vandelli, Andrea; Cid Samper, Fernando, 1991-; Torrent Burgas, Marc; Sánchez de Groot, Natalia; Tartaglia, Gian Gaetano (Elsevier, 2021)
    Condensation, or liquid-like phase separation, is a phenomenon indispensable for the spatiotemporal regulation of molecules within the cell. Recent studies indicate that the composition and molecular organization of ...
